Hot Courts  


Date:            Every Thursday evening
Time:           Drop-in (play continues from 6:30-9:30 pm)
Location:     Montclair Courts, Oakland (Mountain at Colton)
Cost:            $2 donation requested

Hot Courts happen every Thursday evening, year-round.  Simply stop by anytime between 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. (no partner needed) for some casual and fun doubles tennis.
 
The exact format varies, but generally consists of four no-ad games followed by a tiebreaker, after which those who had a bye on the previous round are brought in, partners and opponents are switched up, and play begins again.
 
The cost is only $2.00 per evening, which goes to help defray the costs of court maintenance and repair (nets, windscreens, etc.).

Organizers :    Kelsey Krausen 

2017 marks the 16th anniversary of this annual tournament which was first held in 2002. At that time, Bridget Krausen and Robin Lee were lamenting the fact that they could not get their college-age, home-for-the-summer kids out of bed and onto the tennis courts. Thus, the creation of this tournament which Kelsey Krausen has spearheaded since 2005 in memory of her mother.

The following article was written by Bridget in 2002, and remains relevant for this year's event. It has been edited to reflect current information . . . .

Want to stop your teenager from being a couch potato? Is your son-in-law bragging he could whip Sampras left handed? Then sign up for the "Bridging the Generations" tournament on Saturday, July 22.
Your partner can be of the same or opposite sex, does not have to be related to you, but has to be of a different generation (tournament director reserves the right to the interpretation of this!).

Only one member of a team needs to be an MTA member and the entry fee is $12.00 per player. 
Any member needing to adopt a kid or parent, let me know. Stop youth crime and help a kid along the road to redemption.
